Our Primary Partners

With special thanks to our Primary Partners Bobbi Brown, Bank of America, AJ Bell, Bicester Village and The Telegraph, whose continued and unwavering support has been integral to enabling our charity to reach over 32,000 women.

Bobbi Brown

Bobbi Brown Cosmetics has generously supported us for over ten years and shares our mission to empower women. Each year, they release a limited-edition Pretty Powerful Collection product, from which 100% sales (exc. VAT) come to Smart Works. Bobbi Brown PRO Artists also dedicate their time to support clients with makeup lessons and events, while customers have the opportunity to donate to the charity online. Over the course of the partnership, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics has raised £1 million for Smart Works.
